Fuji Rumor - Medium Format less than Hassy

Recommended Posts

[quote name='Spanik']That's almost discrete electronics these days :D Dalsa made a 70mmx70mm sensor years ago, they even stopped offereing it. Larger sensors than that have been made for scientific purposes.[/QUOTE]

I was pretty sure they did, but the key to keeping costs down is volume, volume and VOLUME.

I wonder if you made the chips for color, but then took the ones that were not perfect and could convert them to B&W?

If the cost was reasonable enough you could see a resurgence of LF photography, perhaps not as large, but very similar to was CV did a decade or so ago......

Given their past and current track records, I doubt Canon's and Nikon's business groups can respond to any new challenges that could erode their market share.

Canon still imaging is benefits by being part of a huge corporation (just as does Fujifilm). But Nikon's [URL="http://www.nasdaq.com/symbol/ninoy/stock-chart?intraday=off&timeframe=6y&charttype=line&splits=off&earnings=off&movingaverage=None&lowerstudy=volume&comparison=off&index=&drilldown=off&sDefault=true"]stock[/URL] reveals they are doing quite poorly as it's value halved since 2012.

They've had their heads in the sand for a long time now.

Here's the thing, even Leica with their SL has beaten Canikon into the mirrorless full frame market. Crazy, huh?
